. you'll be able to hear it, you'll be able to see it. we call the san francisco artists and galleries and said, hey, we want a building that is a place people want to come to work in and to visit. we're now going to be buying art from between 08 and 100 local artists in san francisco and the arts commission will be hanging in that art the next couple of months in the building. >> we'll have a cafe in the lobby. the cafe will be serving people there. they'll have a child care center on-site so people with children can come to work. if something happens to their child they can walk right downstairs. it has enough space for 65 kids. >> we looked at various ways that we could be creative in promoting alternative transportation. we did this by providing bike racks and showers in the building. we do see the number of parking spaces to two parking spaces and providing electrical charging stations for alternative vehicles. >> it's time for us to have a home that all of us can be proud of. >> and we couldn't do this without everybody working together on the one goal, which is, let's build some

function of our government. i also realized that by san francisco definition that i was dealing with supervisors of three different levels, left, middle and right. and i need to say today that i have never been so impressed in my life by politicians to watch them come together as one and to develop a strategy along with a hospital team for the common good. [ applause ] >> we developed together a process that was transparent. the members of the board of supervisors and the members of the team were able to see all the numbers, budgets, projections and brought in expertise to verify those numbers were real number. we got educated together. we politicized together and then we built trust. i'm not saying it's perfect trust, but we built trust. so i would like to single out david chu, david campos and mark ferrel for the great job they did. [ applause ] >> the mayor's office in particular a great deal of debt. he did a great job. i just don't know who i'm going to talk at midnight anymore.

. in many cases those ports are putting up tents to process passengers as the port of san francisco does when we have too many ships or they are rehabilitating warehouse sheds at pierre 35 and dog doing what we have done here today in building a new terminal. this terminal, unlike any other in the nation is dual purposed everything about this terminal is meant to be used for cruise shipping and efficiency, but also for the region and for the visitors and the residents alike. not just the terminal itself, but the park that will come in 2014. the immense valley here and at the end, of course i must point out the expansive apron which will be available to the public everyday except for when the ship is in. there is new ships in asia. this terminal will compete with that. this terminal is unlike any other in that it is an environmental steward representing san francisco's reputation for leading the future off better than the past. this terminal has a unique namesake, named after james herman, president of the international long shore and warehouse unit it is a fitting name because herman wa
